We did some extensive research and somehow found a service manual for our unit online. According to its section 4-1 "Error Items and Diagnostic Codes" the following is the problem:
(code) FE - (description) Power source frequency error - (Trigger) Invalid power source frequency - (Action taken) Check for: (a) Not using regular power source frequency (b) Invalid power frequency sense circuit.
In other words, either the thing you have plugged your machine into is faulty, the electricity itself is of poor quality where you live, or the sensor within the unit is faulty and giving an erroneous error code.
In our case, we had our machine hooked up to a cheap surge protector; which we thought might be the likely source of our problem in the light of the error code description above. So I tried connecting it to a commercial extension cord (I still got an FE code). So I tried moving the extension cord to another room's circuit, thinking maybe it was localized in the laundry room (I still got an FE code).
So, I am guessing we either have a bad "power frequency sensor" or the problem is due to the terrible electricity we have where we live (i.e. that the power frequency fluctuates too much due to our local power company's poor system).
Regardless, I hope this answer helps somebody with the "FE code" problem, now that you know what the code means.

Why on an LG Front loader does the FE code come on and not on Rinse & Spin?


Here is the LG site for washing machine error codes, you can scroll down and find the FE code there:
http://www.lg.com/us/support/product-help/CT10000010-20150140270078-other-error-codes

The site shows the following:

The FE error code indicates the washer is overfilling. This is usually the result of a faulty water valve.

1. Close both water taps.

2. In order to drain out any trapped water, power the washer back on and press the Spin Speed button until No Spin is selected and press the Start/Pause button.

3. Once the washer has drained, restart the wash cycle.

Front load washer LG wm2140cw with error code up side down FE. Any ideas what this means? Will start to run then error code shows up and it stops.


A tE error code on the display of the washer indicates a heating error, usually caused by a faulty thermistor.
  1. Unplug the washer from the power outlet for 10 seconds.
  2. Plug the washer back in and press the POWER button and then the SPIN SPEED button until No Spin is selected. Press the START/PAUSE button.
  3. Once the washer has drained, restart the wash cycle.
  4. If the tE error code appears again, close the water taps and unplug the washer. The washer will require repair service.

Halfway into wash cycle fe code appears, we can select drain & spin cycle and it will finish. how do we fix


The FE error code indicates an Over Flow Error. The machine thinks that the water level is too high in the tub.

There could be three causes to this problem.
1. The water level sensor is bad.
2. One of the solenoids is bad, either hot or cold.
3. The main circuit board is bad.

Based on my experience, the same thing happens to me as you have mentioned that it happens every end of a cycle. I doubt if it was a fan error or a frequency error. for me, its just a simple overload for the autodrying. for example on my model. the manual says autodrying cotton-cupboard dry must be max 3 kg. since you cannot measure your wet clothes and it sometimes exceed the 3kg autodrying, that is when the FE comes out. but when i remove some clothes or spin the laundry again and put it into drying, everything works fine. when i use the machine with minimal clothes say 2kg dry, the whole cycle up to drying work fine without FE errors.

So i believe its just an error for drying overload. also the manual says nothing about FE nor Error code for drying overload.

Hope this help.

I have a wf206ans machine and today i had error code that looks like (be) or (he) i cant find the manual for this machine .this code appears on all cycles for the machine washing or spinning only . any...


The manual for the WF206ANS is available here: http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/200701/20070131100335625_WF317AA_XAA_02291A.pdf . The table with the code list is on page 22 of the pdf (page E-3). A bE error is a motor speed sensor error. If the code reappears when you restart the cycle, then the washer needs service. For other codes or for service, call 1-800-726-7864 (1-800-SAMSUNG).

I hope this helps.

Samsung P801 Front Loader shakes violently during spin cycle.


When the washer goes into spin cycle it is suppost to start at a slow speed and continue to increase speed (to a maximum of 800 RPM) as the water leaves the clothes. Your washer is going directly to 800 RPM which causes the washer to shake and stop giving you the E4 code. The control board that controls this speed increase must be replaced.

I have a Samsung Washer/Dryer (WD-J1255) When trying to complete a dry cycle, "HE2" shows on the screen. There is no such error code in the manual. The machine has been reset and the same happens...


Samsung reports FE is "FAN ERROR".

Samsung replaces the internal die cast fan-heater unit.

If not under warranty, as DIY try unpluuging the unit and removing the top cover. Remove the aluminium die cast "Assy Duct Scroll" which is on the RHS and contains a fan and a heater. Dissasemble by removing screws and remove the clogging by detergent foam and lint. Use vinegar as this dissolves the sludge. Rinse and check that the fan can spin freely. Note that the fan motor or heater could have burned out. However it is likely that a heat sensor that reported FE can caused a shutdown due to over heating.

If cleaning and replacing does not help a new unit may have to be sourced.

Note if exensive corrosion is present the unit will have to be replaced.

Note that use of foaming detergents or too much detergent will cause this problem.
